Sharing a Slice of Life: Commercials

When I was a small girl we did not own a television.  I was about 10 when we purchased an older television that looked something like this.
I actually listened more to radio and followed "The Lone Ranger" and other similar shows.  However, it was on this television that I was introduced to "The Mickey Mouse Musketeers" and  "Howdy Doody Time" .  Although the commercial of the Campbell's Kids singing "M-m-good, m-m-good, that's what Campbell's soup is - m-m-good." began many years before I was born, the jingle was a standard commercial for soup in the 50's as I was growing up.  Below is a short commercial jingle.

That's awesome! I was trying to think of some from the radio days, but wasn't sure who all was around back then! :)

I remember our first black and white TV. Looked somewhat like yours. And Howdy Dowdy was the only show on. Micky Mouse came later.
We children also listened to radio shows. It was fun
